The article states:
Integrated tightly with the Apache Lucene search library, the combination, Lucene/Solr, is the industry’s most widely used platform for writing real-time embedded search applications that can scale to handle billions of documents and high query volumes. Solr is considered by many to be the open source standard for fast, flexible and scalable implementation. To congratulate the Apache Solr community on this release, LucidWorks, the trusted name in Search, Discovery and Analytics, invites the community to mark the occasion by sharing praise for Solr and posting comments to the Solr 4.0 goes GA blog post located on SearchHub.org.
The growth of multi-structured data is at an all-time high, and LucidWorks is rising to the occasion. This year the company went through a name change and rebranding, helping to clarify their mission and purpose to their customers. They remain the most sought after and trusted open source enterprise search solution. The SearchHub.org blog mentioned above is yet another way to offer a sense of community and means of support to customers.
